Ornamental Grass Briza media: “The Quaking Grass” has blue green leaves and flower heads that hang like scaly little heart shaped lockets that are tinged with pink from late spring to mid summer.
An easily-grown perennial Briza that prefers richer soil than most grasses and will tolerate semi shade well. Very easy to grow to perfection
A native grass, that is worthy of a place in any border when its large quaking seed heads erupt over the foliage in summer. When first open, the seed heads are green but they gradually take on golden shades as summer progresses and become almost animated when touched by a gentle summer breeze.
Briza media has graceful, pendant, nodding flowers, a wonderful cut flower adding elegance and feeling to summer and winter decorations.
Divide plants in March to April
Once the plant is established, divide in March to April. It is relatively easy to propagate by division. Do this in spring, not autumn, as some newly divided plants may rot before they've developed a good root system.
